Thermo-optical compensation in high-index-contrast waveguides using polymer claddings
We present the design and fabrication of temperature-insensitive high-index-contrast waveguides using acrylate polymer claddings. The large negative thermo-optic coefficient of the polymers effectively compensates the intrinsic positive thermo-optic effects induced from the waveguide core.
